[on repeat] Sjowgren//Now & Then

I’m a sucker for infectious indie pop gems and Sjowgren are definitely feeding my addiction. The Bay Area trio released “Seventeen” last year and I was impressed. Last month they dropped their latest single, “Now & Then,” I now I’m hooked. Stream both tracks below.

Hope to hear more new material soon, rumor has it they’re busy working on new material. Stay tuned.


(31) Days of Good//12.19.15

“…’Water Slides’ is the single I’ve been waiting for. The Mew I have been missing from my life. Where ‘Satellites’ touched upon a much lighter and uplifting theme, ‘Water Slides’ decides to delve into a much more brooding and somber world. The world where Mew shines. It is in this matter that they warm up my heart the most. I love me some dark undertones in music. I thrive on it. So basically, what I’m trying to say is that this song has been on repeat all day and I’ve shoved it down all of my friends throats already. You guys are next in my shoving! WOOO!” (via The Original D-Rose)

“Sjowgren is a brand-new trio from the Bay area, though their sound, which Bob calls ‘clean, wonderful pop,’ convinced Robin they must be from Sweden. ‘Seventeen’ is a joyful, experimental confection, with lead vocals that reminded both Bob and Robin of The Concretes’ singer Victoria Bergsman.” (via All Songs Considered)

“I love me some Mas Ysa (aka Thomas Arsenault).  You should slap on some headphones for this ambitious track, which features big vocals and a wonderfully textured arrangement.” (via Side One Track One)
